Alarmed local people took to social media to express their concerns.

One woman posted on local community Facebook site: “So many dogs and young children about!”

Whie another said: “This is so dangerous for dogs.”

One woman added: “I know there are a number of notices advising not leave your rubbish as it attracts rats but this puts us all at risk.”
